The new crosscut tunnel on the Key
.tone mine reached thc footwoll Saturday
and the vein was proved to be about 10
feet wide between walls, says a correspondent at Slyvanite, Mont. Drifting was
immediately started south along the foot
wall and is now advanced about 15 feet.
This will be pushed on until under the big
Btope on tlie upper level, when a crosscut
will be run to the hanging wall. Drifting
will also be done north und a raise will
soon bc made from the nortli drift to the
upper level, llie big slope referred to on
the upper level was encountered in drifting south on the footwall from the face
of the crosscut tunnel. After drifting
aliout 45 feet the drift went through two
feet of ore into rock thut was supposed
to be thc foot wall. This was cut through
and found to be a horse two feet thick.
It was passed and a tremendous body of
ere was entered tliat has since been known
in this camp as the "big stope." This is
now shown to be 55 feet wide and the
hnnging wall is yet to be discovered. This
great ore body has been explored for 126
foet and its width holds out throughout
that distance. The drift has been run 200
feet further und now shows about six
* feet of ore in the face. A north drift has
also been run about 200 feet but no such
immense ore body has becn entered as on
the south drift. However, the drift has
opened up ore varying from five to Rix
foet wide. It is conservatively estimated
that there is ore enough in sight lo keep
th prcsnt HI stamp mill running day and
night for two years.
Pony Gnlvh.
It is reported here lhat Sir. Craven,
until recently amalgamator at the Daddy,
will put up a live-stamp mill this summcr
to work some of lho ore from Tony gulch,
between Delta and Heaver station, Idaho.
Bpokane parties ure said to be behind the
enterprise, which should be a paying one
as there is some good ore up Pony gulch.
Years ago there was a mill built there
which crushed the rock with rolls insteud
of stamps—a method which has proven
a failure on the hard quartz of the Coeur
d'Alenes. l'he mistake was also mnde of
locating the mill where it was inconvenient and expensive to get the ore to it,
and steam power was used to run it. Even
with those disadvantages it was almost
a bucccss, and it is confidently believed
that mills driven by water and suitably
located would prove that there arc a number of mines in that region that will pay
for working and some that will be profitable.
Since the old mill—the Fay Templeton
—cl.s:d down thero haa been ■ .thing done
on Pony except assessment work, and the
region which at one time was a promising
one, has nearly dropped out of sight. Thc
Kay Templeton property was reincorporated last fall, some of the prominent mining men of the south fork becoming interested in it, and it was then understood
that arrangements would be made this
spring; to work the property on a business
basis, with the expectation that some
money would be made from it. The old
mill was torn out, the boiler being sold
to the revivification works at Murray, but
there the work ceased, and nothing more
has been heard regarding it.
The Iron Maak.
Thc winze on the Iron Mask, near Rossland, hns reached the 105-foot level below
the main tunnel, which is equivalent to a
depth from thc surface of 305 feet, the
deepest workings yet opened on the property. About tw o feet of excellent shipping
ore has been disclosed in the winze. In
the west drift on thc main tunnel level a
raise in under way to open ground for
sloping. The raise is disclosing some
good ore. From tho aiinunl report of the
minister of mines, the production of lode
properties , in the year 1897, was $20,547.
This was lead and silver. In 1803 the
first 1170 unccs of gold was reported, total values, $207,400. Copper was first
marketed in 1804, there being 324,080
pounds, valued nt $10,234. Thc total of
the lode mineral values for thc year 1807
was $7,062,431. From the year 1H87 to
1898, 10 years, British Columbia produced
from her lode mines $15,004,427.
Monlaaa City 1'lncera,
Tho prospecting operations on bad rock,
conducted by means of a lurgc centrifugul
pump on the placer grounds nenr Montana
(Sty has led to the employment this season of a steam shovel and other modern
gold saving appliances such as is in successful use at Ilannuck nnd elsewhere on
formerly rclh surface placer grounds in
this slate. Part of the machinery is already on thc ground, nnd thc work of getting it in position for actual operation
is being pushed without delay. List season's proopecting thoroughly demonstrated the fact that the actual bed rock of
thc placei-s at Montana City hnd not only
nover been molested but thnt they are
rich in gold, a fact which has always
becn maintained by miners familiar witli
the ground, and thc installation Of thc
dredge process to Bave the gold will bo
watched with great interest by everybody
interested in the development of that section of the country.
The North Star.
Ono of the largest mining deals of the
year is reported to be progress of negotiation at Fort Steele in the Eust Kootenay district. A large English syndicate,
backed by the Rothschilds, is negotiating
for the purchase of the famous North
Star mine on a basis of $3,000,000. One
nf the principal owners of the mine, D.
D. Mann, haB been given authority to sell
by the other owner**, and it is reported
that negotiations nre progressing favorably. l?ie North Star is one of the oldest
locations in the Fort Steele district and
there are millions of dollars worth of ore
in sight. It has been under development
for a number of years and only the lack
of adequate transportation facilities has
prevented the property from laking a foremost rank among the silver mines of the
Ymlr Camp.
A one-fourth interest in the Plymouth
or Nanno 0. group has been sold to Thomas Kereeme of Kosslund for $4000 cash.
This property is close to the Taniarac ond
has a line, well defined ledge running
across the entire claim which runs high
in gold ond copper. Tlie group was own-
«1 by John P. Curlin Temple Seeley and
Thomas Stack of Rossland. Temple See-
Icy was the one who disposed of his interest. Considerable work has been done
on the Plymouth. It is said work will be
commenced on the group at an early date.
J. P. Rogers of St. Mary's, Ont, hns pin-
chnsed one-hulf interest in the Ollie claim
on Round mountain, close to the Flossie
R., und owned by T. A. Mills nnd others.
Tho transaction was a cash deal but the
price wus not made public
From Meyer. Fall..
Meyers Fulls—Thc owners of the Rustler claim have made an iinjHirtant discovery on their claim. The ledge is aliout
00 feet wide nnd is well mineralized. The
eluim wos only locnted a few days ago,
and in view of the discovery just made
they will go on with development at once,
and open up thc claim to determine the
extent of the find. The claim is about
1000 feet from the Black Jack. The owners
of the Black Jack are going on with development. Several locations have recently been made on the school section adjoining the town, and the quality of the
ore is such that locators are encouraged
to go on with development.

San Fianciseo, May 23.—California Baid
good bye to her first regiment of volunteers this morning as they marched gaily
forth froni the Presidio to start on their
long journey to Manila.
The men left camp at 8 and marched
to the. Pacific Mail dock, where the big
steamer City of Pekin was ready for them.
By noon the soldiers were all on board
and beforo night everything will he in
readiness for their departure.
The farewell demonstration by the people of San Francisco will be long remembered by the soldiers of the First regiment. Kvery street leading from the Presidio to the Pacific Mail dock, a distance
of about five miles, was lined with people,
who, after the soldiers passed, followed in
their wake and marched with Ihem tothe
it had been announced that camp would
be struck nt 7 this morning, and long before that hour thousands of citizens had
flocked to the Presidio to see the sight.
Promptly at 7 the bugle sounded and all
the tents went down together. Then, for
an hour, tlie soldiers were busily engaged
in rolling them up and loading them on
trucks. At 8 the regiment was formed
into line, and headed by its bands, marched out through the big stone gates of the
Presidio and the journey of conquest had
As the marching men reached the water
front, bombs were fired, steam whistles
blown and every device imaginable for
making noise was put in full operation.
Tho jam at the moil dock was something
terrible. In vain the police and mounted
signal corps attempted to keep the crowd
back. They were not to be denied, and
rushed on to the dock in thc wukc of the
Arrived at the dock tlie volunteers were
marched on board the transport without
delay. It took considerable time for each
man to be consigned to his quarters, but
this ta«k was accomplished with but very

To Tow the Monterey.
San Francisco, May 23.—llie work of
coaling and provisioning thc Monterey is
progressing rapidly and when this is completed the vessel will go to Mare island
to take on ammunition and to undergo a
thorugh examination before she puts to
Hie examiner states that the Monterey
will be towed all the way to Manila, probably by some big steam collier. It says:
"The Monterey of herself coulu not go
half way to Honolulu. She carries only
200 tons of eoal in hcr bunkers, whicli
would hardly hist more than two days.
She could cany .'100 tons more on her
decks if good weather prevailed.
The Monterey will he on the dry dock
for five days. After tho vessel comes
from tho dry dock two days will he required for coaling, ond two days for loading supplies. She will be reaoy for sea a
week from tomorrow. The vessel that
accompanies the Monterey will he loaded
with coal and stores for herself and the
warship. Tho voyage of the Monterey is
a hazardous one, but this is tne mist favorable time of the year for such an undertaking."1        .

World from Madrid says:
With the incoming of the new govern*
ment renewed activity Ims been given to
foreign and home defenses, torpedoes
have been laid at thc entrances of all the
important harbors.
ho new ministry has determined to
send out at once wluit is known us the
reserve squadron, that is to say, tho warship Pelayo, the protected cruisers Carlos
V and Alfonso XIII, the torpedo boat destroyers Audaz, Prosperina and Destructor, trie dispatch boat Giralda,the auxiliary
boats ltapido und Pallia and the aimed
trana-Atlantic liners, Joaquin d'Piclago,
Alfonso XIII, Antonio Lopez, Ciudad de
Cadiz and Buenos Ayres.
To the above will be added the lteina
Rcgenta, which is being armed at Fermi,
and tho Leon XIII, which has already
started from Barcelona for Cadiz. This
fleet is likely to start at once, und it is
publicly stated that it is going to .Manila.
Significant suggestions are made us to
the possibility of the Pelayo getting
through thc Suez canal, owing to her
draught, but it may bc readily understood
that the admiralty is not giving their secrets away nnd that the Ileet will sail
under sealed orders, and lhat it is quite
as likely to go west as east.
Tlie Third Fleet.
New York, May 23.—A dispatch to the
Herald from Gibraltar says:
The government here will not allow war
vessels passing the straits to proceed.
Tho Spaniards ore starting out what
they call their third squadron, which con

is but newly armored and engined.
There are also at Ferrol the torpedo
gunboats Dona Maria de Molina, the Alar
quifle dc La Yittoria and Don Alyaro de

Xew York, May 23.—A dispatch to the
World from Cadiz says:
Tt is stated here very positively that the
Pelayo, Carlos V, three of the Atlantic
steamers and two torpedo boat destroyers
will shortly go to the Philippines. The
fleet is well armed and manned.
It is said here there are mines in Manila
harbor that were not exploded when the
American fleet entered, the electric communications being out of order. This has,
so it is rumored, now been rectified and
preparations are complete to give Admiral
Dewey a warm good bye should he attempt to leave. This rumor will bear fl
big lump of salt.

Madrid, Moy 23.—According to a current report here the Spanish reserve fleet
will maneuver in Cadiz waters until its
destination is decided upon.

Chicago, Moy 23.-- A special from Washington says:
Tho firing upon the Knglish ship Roth
by the Spanish cruiser Isabella promises
serious complications. Tho Spanish say
it was a mistake, but thc British and

.London, Moy 23.—St. James (Jazeetc
this afternoon in its financial article says:
In thc foreign market this morning several leading dealers were said to be in
possession of advance news of the forthcoming announcement of a Franco-Sp inlsh
alliance hence the rise in Spanish fours.
ln connection with the above it is currently reported that the recent speeches
from Salisbury and Chamberlain did not
refer to West Africa but to this impending alliance against which Chamberlain's
allusion to an Anglo-American alliance
was intended as a counterblast.

Congress will soon be called upon to decide the question of building a canal connecting tiie Atlantic nnd Pacilic oceans.
Chairman Davis of the senate foreign relations committee said:
"'llie need for action between the Atlantic and Pacific can not be questioned.
Our interests demand it. With a canal
between the two oceans we would have
nothing to fear from on attack on our
Pacilic coast. As it is it would take us 00
days to send our (leet around the Horn to

we could dispach men-of-war to San Francisco from New York in 14 days. With

endeavoring to sell its interests to the
government, started the canal some time
ago and considerable work was done, but
the hard times of 1802-08 come along and
struck a death blow to the enterprise.
this company succeeded in getting certain
concessions, which it still retains, and it
is but right that the United Stales should
buy these concessions and pay the canal

Two Indians accomplished o perilous
undertaking the other day on the Clearwater at Lapwai. They were anxious to
cross, and not wishing to take the time
to go down the river live miles to the
ferry, they drove their horses into the
river, which is a raging torrent, and hanging to their tails, reached the other side
safely. A large crowd witnessed the
foolhardy trick.
Work on tho extension of the Palouse
branch of the N. P. railroad is being
pushed ahead, about 150 men being employed on the grading work. The track
has been laid to the Clearwater, and is
there is any delay in running trains into
Lewiston by July 1 it will Iw because
of the failure to complete the bridge
across tho Clearwater. The warm weather
of the post few days bas caused the river
to rise rapidly, whicli makes more difficult ond dangerous tho work of building
tho bridge. The only grading that Remains to bo done is on the south side of
the river, whicli will tako about one
month's work.

New York, May 21.—A special to the
Tribune from Washington says;
The intention of the war department
to -force the Cuban campaign was SUf*
cieiil'ly indicated by the steps taken today for the speedy mobilization and
equipment of the immune regiments authorized by congress last week.
This law, which empowers the president
lo authorize un additional volunteer force
not exceding 10,000 enlisted men "possessing Immunity from the diseases incident to tropical climates," will bc immediately put into effect by the forma*
tion of six regiments of nearly 1000 men
each, to be recruited in the gulf states.
Assurances from that .section . are to
the effect that these men ore practically
ready for mustering in und are awaiting
equipment Nearly all of them have hud
military training and confidence is expressed that they can bo made ready for
active service within 10 days.
It is significant that if iramunes are
needed at all iu the Cuban campaign they
are especially adapted for service there in
the immediate future and that if the campaign was to be abandoned until fall there
would lie need to raise, this force hur-
rledly in the month of May.
The president today selected the colonels of these immune regiments from
among the best officers in Ihe regular
-ervice and orders will be issued to them
tomorrow lo hurry south and begin the
selection of their commands, reporting
for duty to the Fourth corps, under Major General Coppinger at Mobile.
It is expected that the four regiments
■ jf Emmunes commanded by officers from
the regular army will be recruited wholly
from the colored population, who, it. is
believed, will be least susceptible to climatic influences. Many colored militia
organizations in the south have already
tndered their services and many of them
\ ill doubtless be accepted, Up to the present time only four colored companies havo
been mustered into the regular army.

No'otbt-r sovereign bas reigned as
Jong M biii UnQtiv, Victoria and no other
sovereign has witnessed snch great
changes and Hilvancements in tbe condition of their people and nation.
For 61 years -she has fulfilled tbe duties of her pioud position, and her firmness of character, keen msijjhl, tact una
^reat business sagacity have gained for
ber a position never attained by any
aibcr monarch, cither living or del*1.
Her policy has always been lhat of
peace but while not engaged in actual
wailare the military and naval forces of
lhe empiro have not been neglected, but
have been greatly increased and improved until now Britain's navy rules
iho seas and while P'her ji-jtionn are engaged in warfare she looks proudly PH,

Queen Victoria was born on the 24>b
day of May, 1819, and was barely 18
years of age when, upon tie de*lh of
her uncle William 'IV,: in' 1S37, she ascended the throne of England. Since
that time she has ruled the nation with
wisdom, and a degree of dignity and
prudence that has justly won fh6 love
and admiration of her subjects, throughout tbe world, as well as the respect of
all other na'tons.
She married her cousin, Prince Albert
of 8,ae-CuJ>urg-jl.}*:>tha, in J-'ebruary,
1810, and lived happily with him until
bis death in 1861; since which time she
has remained a widow.
Apirt from her quali ies as a ruler,
Queen Victoria is, and always has been,
in her social life a most amiable woman.
Courteous, kind and thoughtful tothe
smallest ylesire of every perjpf>'"associa-
ted with tier, sbe could not f-yjitowin
the inspect and affection of ail with
whom ihe came in contact. Besides being a great and exalted ruler, she carried into social life the noble traits of a
true, good and really Christian woman.
There is one feature connected wilh
the celebration of this, Her Majesty's
79th birthday, that may cast a slight
cloud over the tho i*th(*rwise perfectly
joyous occasion, and that is the fact that
the glorious day just passed brings us
nearer to the time when our great and
good sovereign must in the course of
human events bid adieu to this world
and puss into the great beyond from
wn'ence none retur». But wij can turn
from this sad thought with the perfect
assurance that when ;he receives the
call our queen will be found waiting and
ready for the praise which she will
surely receive, "Well done, thou jood
and faithful servant."
The liritish American Corporation is
pot so entirely Britjsh as to confine its
operations to Bri'ioh territory. The
fact that it intends investing big money
over in Republic camp shows that the
49'.h paralle) is non-existent in mining
msiness matters! and although the corporation, as at present constituted, is not
permitted by the Washington state law
to own and operate tbe Northport smelter, there are several ways' of getting
around such a little detriment as that,
lt will not be surprising if the immense
capital in the hands of the corporation
proves to be strong onough to make the
state change the law.—Rossland Times.

C, P. R. Making Preparations
to Extend its Line.
Prospects  of a   Railway  Are  Now
Brighter  Than   at Any  Time
Since  Corbin's  Defeat.
It has now begun to look as though
by some unforseen force of circumstances the C. P. R. would actually
build, or at least begin construction
upon their proposed extension into the
Boundary country at no far distant date.
When the proposition to grant D. C.
Corbin a charter to build the Kettle
River Valley railway thrgugh tbis section was up belore tbe Dominion Parliament the C. P. R. promised, as an inducement for its defeat, that they would
build a line into this district, immediately, if the Corbin road was only shut
out. While no one in this section doubted that in tbe event of Mr. Corbin's being allowed to build, tbe C. P. R. would
also construct a line to compete with
bim, but little faith was put in their offer to build if he was shut out, tbe people thinking this but a clever ruse to
blind the legislators
Even when, since the charter was refuted to Corbin, the big Canadian line
has been surveying through this country no particular attention was paid to
tbem; but it now really begins to look
as though they meant business.
Tbe people of this country tried tbeir
best to bave a charter granted to Mr
Corbin, not from from aqy enimity toward tbe 0. P. R., but because they
wanted a railway and wanted it quick.
Tbey will welcome the C. p. R. aa joy
ously as tbey would have welcomed
Bids have been opened for the construction of the line tbrougb this district, and now comes the welcome news
from Trail tbat notices are printed calling for 200 laborers for railroad work at
Robson, on tbe extension of tbe Columbia & Western railway. This, says the
informant, is tbe first call, but many
mere are expected to follow.
Another fact which adds greatly to
tbe probability ot a road being at leasi
started during tbe coming summer
js tbe fact that the bonus of $4,000 per
ipi|e granted to the Columbia & Western by the terms of their charter, which
bat been purchased by the C. P. R.,
will not* be allowed unlets actual construction is begun within 15 months of
-tbe gth of May, 1897, or on or before the
§th day of August next. Without this
bonus tbe construction of a road into
lhe* Boundary Country would be a rather
doubtful proposition for a while at least,
although there it not the slightest doubt
jn the world that it would eventually be
a big dividend payer as all that is needed to place tbe district in the front rank
of the world's mining sections it transportation for tbe rich ores which are
here in great abundance.
Should the C. P, R. carry put tbeir
present cxpiessed intention of rushing
construction on a line through here immediately they will have no reason to
complain of the greeting they will receive from our people wbo bave so long
looked with longing eyes toward the
great day which should see them connected tfiore closely with the outside
world and remove the incubus of lack
of transportation which alone bat held
back tbe development of thit wonderful district Any railroad it welcome
and it it a case of first come, first served. 	
Re-edy*-!? and ¥~t~"tH!4f4 x~ Headquarters
at Moplr.il.
Bids fo; tbe construction of tbe Columbia & Western, which it the C. P.
R. extension into tbe Boundary country, bave been received and forwarded
to the C. P. R. headquarters at Montreal. No word has yet been received,
but as toon at the bejt ■»nd most responsible bid ii determined, the pontrapt will
be awarded.
The road will be an expensive piece
pf work, became of the numerous tunnels and br jdget. This is especially so
from Christina lake to tbe Columbia
river. It has been estimated tbat the
road would cost $3,000,000 although
sonie doubt bas been expressed at to iti
construction for tbat amount. It coven

The question of building the Crow's
"■Jest Pats road around by tbe way of

Is again being agitated, because of tbe
pany rich proporties being deyeloped
jn that vicinity. The C. P. R. engineer

of the -route, forwarding it tp head-
Ever jibing is in readiness for tbe reconstruction of the road to Rossland, to
a standard guage. The bids are in and
will be opened as soon as Vice President Shaughnessy ariiyei, w'<tich will be
early in June. Trayel will not be interrupted while the wor|t of widening is
in progrets. In some instances tbe road
will be built ou an entirely new grade,
and many sharp curves dispensed with.
Tbe bridges to be constructed ii** order
to do away with tbe switchback, will be
yery high and one of the expensive" features of the work.—Trail Creek News.

A Good Time Had at the Calico Dance
Last Night.
In spito of a terrible downpour of rain,
which for a time seemed to doom it be a
failure, tbe Necktie and Calico ball given by tbe ljtdies of the Associated Cbari-
tui, in Laurier hall j|j Upper Grand
Forki last evening, was a social and
financial success.
About fifty of our good citizens braved
the elements and joined in tripping the
light fantastic until an early hour this
morning, the spacious hall being just
filled enough to allow plenty of room
for the full enjoyment of tbe dance without crowding anyone. Owing to tbe wet
weather the dance was not started until
nearly ten o'clock, at which hour the
neckties were drawn for and the Grand
March begun. A number of rigs were
kept busy from nine o'clock until nearly
eleven in carrying tbe Terpitchorian
enthusiasts out to the hall, and by twelve
o'clock, when supper was served, it was
demonstrated tbat the affair was a
The floor was in excellent condition
and the music was all tbat could be desired. The entire affair was under the
management of tbe ladies and too much
credit can not be given the committees
wh*. had tbe matter in charge for tbe
manner in which tbey carried tbe affair
through to success.
It is Pretty Rough.
The supplementary estimates presented to the legislature last week add
>J5o,g40 to tbe ordinary estimates. Of
tbis amount 0440,482 is to be expended
before tbe end of June this year, and
(44,248 is to make good sums of money
expended withgut authqrjty from the
legislature. The supplementaries are
prepared for election purposes. Eatt
Yale fares well: Vernon gets $12,000
for a new jail; Fairview will receive $500
for its hospital; a new school is to be
built at Okanogan Falls, to cost (700;
also schools at Mara and Lumby cost:
ing the same figure.
Greenwood gets nothing. The Greenwood hospital mutt struggle along another year without assistance. The
Grand Forks fire department will re.
ceive £300; tbe Greenwood fire department wi)l receive nothing. There is
plenty of money for roads tbronghout

Saloon and Concert Hall Bylaw Read Third Time.
Bare Possibility  of its  Defeat  Yet,
But the Chances Ail  Favor
Its   Passage.
At the regular session of tbe council,
which was bela at 1130 yesterday afternoon, the city fathers showed a spirit of
progress far in advance of any they
bave yet evinced, by deciding to grant
licenses for both saloons and concert
When the meeting was called to order
there were present Mayor Davis and all
tbe aldermen, a spirited fight over the
proposed by-law being expected. The
minutes of the last meeting were read
and adopted; after wbich the clerk read
an application from G. J. Hayward for
the position of city treasurer and also
an application of Frank Sears for the
positions of treasurer and assessor.
Both of these applications were ordered
laid over until the regular meeting next
Friday afternoon, when some action will
be taken.
On motion of Alderman O'Connor,
tbe bills of Mr. Spraggett and Peter
Hannan for materials and labor furnished in repairing tbe North Fork
bridge, were ordered paid.
Having disposed of these preliminary
matters tbe council resolved itself into
a committee of the whole and settled
down for the main business of the day,
tbe discussion of tbe saloon and concert
hall by-law. Aldermen Manly, and McCallum were opposed to the by-law,
Mayor Davis was wavering, and O'Connor, Knight, Jones and Whits were
straight out lor tbe passage of the bill
and the progress of the city. After considerable discussion pro and con, O'Connor moved tbat a vote by ballot be
taken on tbe by-law as it then stood.
McCallum moved an amendment to tbe
effect (bat the bylaw be further discussed. Tbis amendment was defeated,
tbe council deciding to vote upon the
proposition at once, A vote by ballot
was then taken, resulting in four votes
being cast in favor of tbe bill and but
three against it. Thus tbe bill has passed its third reading. It must now be
finally adopted at the next regular meeting and then the city can grant saloon
and other licenses to all who may apply.
There is a bare possibility tbat the bylaw may be defeated at tbe last moment
but this is very unlikely and without a
doubt the bill will become a law next
After the saloon by-law bad been disposed of, Alderman Jones introduced
the matter of draining tbe slough on
Riverside avenue and after some discussion tbe board of works was instructed to attend to tbe matter at ongg.
The council then ar'juurned until next
Friday, at the usual hour.
Discussed the By-law.
An adjourned session of the city council was held at 1:30 p. m. last Monday for
the purpose of discussing the saloon and
concert ball bylaw. Immediately upon
the meeting being called to order by the
mayor the council resolved itieif into a
committee of tbe whole, wi(h A|*jerman
White ia the cba'r.
Aldermen O'Connor, Jonei and
Knight were strongly in favor of tbe bill
believing it to be one of tbe best things
yet proposed for tbe benefit of tbe city,
while L. A. Manly was as strongly opposed, Mayor Davis seemed inclined
against it, White wanted more time to
consider the matter and Peter McCallum ''quite agreed" with everybody.
Manly proposed that the most equitable way to settle tbe matter was to
raise the hotel licenses to (300 and give
no saloon licenses; apd McCallum
L. A. then went on to argue tbat tbe
hotels of the city were furnishing almost
all the business of the the town, and Mc
Galium agreed.
The advocates of tbe by-law contended tbat the granting of thf saloon and
concert hall licenses wpuld not only
greatly increase tbe revenues of tbe
city but would also attract a great deal
ot outside money into tbe town. Before Mr. McCallum could agree to thit,
the council decided to postpone further
discussion of tbe subject until tbe regular meetjng on Friday.
A $27,000 Payment.
Yesterday in Mr. Hallett'i office, Mr.
A. H. Harrison acting for the syndicate
controlling tbe B. C. mine in Summit
camp, paid over to John W. Keough &
Sont, tbe sum of §27-000. This it the
largest individual payment ever made
in Greenwood with respect to Boundary
Creek mining properties.
The B. 0. was bonded nine months
ago for $(50,000, It was then a prospept
but the indications were so encouraging tbat Mr. Harrison had no hesitation in giving tbe band at tbat figure
He at once went to work to develop the
property. A steam Plant •vas secured,
a shaft sunk 160 feet. About 400 fget
of drifting was carried out on tbe upper
ltvel and 100 feet on tbe lower level.
Tbe development was in ore nearly the
whole of the time wjth the result that
there is pow 1200 tons of high grade
copper ore on tbe dump. The first
payment on the bond was made six
months ago. Before making the $27,000
payment tbe B. C. was experted by Dr.
Hatch, an English mining engineer of
long experience. That the payment bas
been made is the best evidence that the
property is anything but a disappointment to t{\e syndicate.  "£he cjeaj was
arranged by Q. H. Collins who secures
a 10 per cent commission.
The history* of the B. C. has been
told so frequently that it is unnecessary to repeat it. Messrs. Keough 8c
Sons bave made a snug fortune out of
what was a mere proypegt a year ago.—

Opposition Convention at Rossland Postponed tp June 8.
The Opposition convention, wbich
was scheduled to be held at Rossland
last Wednesday, has been postponed
until June 8, at tbe request of (be delegation from Grand Forks and tbe
Boundary country. The people of tbis
district did not think they were given a
proper representation in tbe convention
and consequently their delegates asked
that the conclave be postponed until a
representation could be secured from all
parts of tbe Boundary country.
Immediately following the postponement being decided upon the Boundary
delegates presented a pioposition to
hold the June meeting in Grand Forks,
offering to pay the hotel and transportation expenses if tbis was done, but tbe
proposal failed to meet with the approval of the east side delegates and
was finally withdrawn.
Almost every other Rossland delegate
it a candidal* for the nomination and
tbe Boundary representatives feel sure
tbat by uniting their forces against the
numerous Rossland factions they can
secure the nomination of a man from
this side the divide in the end.
Fishing For Big Game.
The fishing from the North Fork
bridge was extraordinarily good for a
while Wednesday, and for the proprietors of the Grand Forks brewery at
least, was of all absorbing interest.
Tbe wagon used by the brewery people in distributing liquid refreshments
in Grand Forks and tbe adjacent territory was run into tbe river Wednesday
morning for the purpose ot washing it
off. It was ne more than well into tbe
water before the current swept it away
and it went careening down the stream
and lodged under tbe North Fork bridge.
The rubber-neck association at once
turned out and began fishing for the
submerged vehicle. Finally they succeeded in getting a rope fastened onto
the wagon, a team was hooked on and it
was pulled out, much to the relief of its
owners.   But the fishing was spoiled.
Sent Delegates.
A meeting was held last Saturday
evening for the purpose of sending delegates to the Opposition convention to be
held in Rossland, May 2', and resulted
in the selection of Peter T. McCallum,
John A. Manly, E. E. Spraggett, P. H.
McCarter and Chas. Van Ness to represent the district and assist in tbe nomination of an Opposition cand date to
stand at tbe coming Provincial election.
Tbe delegates left On Sunday for Rossland, with the exception of Messrs McCallum and Spraggett who were unable
to get away. Chas. Cumings, the town-
site agent, went pver as projty for Mr.

and furnished with a complete city
water system. The lights were turned
un for tbe first lime for lighting purposes lost Tuesday evening and everything worked perfectly. The lights
gleamed brightly through tbe darkness
and gave tbe city a more metropolitan air than ever.

Kettle River Claims Another
Small Victim,
And   Little    Albert    Traunweiser's
Play Ended In » Watery
The entire community was shocked
and saddened last Monday evening by
the sudden hurling into eternity of little
Albert Traunwftiser, the second son of
Mr. and Mrs. Traunweiser, of the Alberta hotel.
The little lad, who had just passed his
fifth birthday about a week, was, in company with a number of other small
children, playing along ibe river bank
in the neighborhood of the new bridge
acioss Kettle river at First street, on
the fatal evening, and was amusing himself by throwing chips into the water.
Just below tbe bridge a log is moored
for the purpose of shunting the current
to keep jt from cutting away the bank.
Onto this log the child climbed, and in
trying to toss a chip still further into
the stream, lost his balance and was
precipitated into the raging torrent.
Mr, Sam Rose, whose home is close
by, heard the frightened screams of the
children and rushed out just in time to
see the child disappear in the boiling
flood. Instantly be plunged into tbe
stream but Ihe current whirled the boy
out of his reach and he sank from sight
to rise no more. Mr, RoseJ bad considerable difficulty in extracting himself
Irom his perilous position.
Boats were st once procured and the
river dragged until long after dark but
without avail. Dynamite was also used
to raise the body but failed to produce
tbe desirjd effect, and finally about ten
o'clock ihe search was given up.
There is very little probability that
the body will ever be recovered, as
where the two rivers come together a
short distance below the scene of tbe
accident there is anjeddy whicb causes
a constant shifting of the sand on tbe
bottom and the body will in all likely-
hood be buried in the ever changing
sands where the two rivers meet.
Mr. aod Mrs. Al Traunwoiser, the
parents of the unfortunate lad, are al
most prostrated with grief, and have the
sympathy of the entire community in
their sudden and terrible be.eavement.
Mrs. Traunweiser was just starting
out for a spin on her bicycle when tbe
accident occurred, and was for a time
completely prostrfltef), but has now
somewhat recovered from the first shock
of tbe sad affair,
Mr. Traunweiser rushed to the river
as soon as he received the news and
worked heroicaly to recover bis son's
body, but bis efforts were unavailing.
Little Albert was a general favorite
with his playmates, and all who knew
him will saaly miss his bright face and
merry laugh, liis schoolmates are particularly shocked by tbe terrible accident, and will for some time at least
keep at a respectful distance from the
banks of the treacherous river whicb
swallowed up tbeir loved companion.

From Pass Creek-
At Pass Creek camp an increasing
amount of assessment and development
work is being done. Although somewhat cut off frnm more populous centres by reason of the long delay in
giving the camp wagon-road connection;, its claim holders are generally
confident that their turn will come
soon, the mineral showings some of
them have, being large and promising
enough to justify tlieir belief that they
will soon attract the notice of men with
money to put  into  a  good  prospect.
One lead in particular is having attention. It is stated that this lead has
been traced by outproppirgs over a
comparatively long distance on its
northwesterly trend up Pass creek
towards Long lake. Among the
claims on it are Maud S., Mountain
Lion, Sideliill Star, No, 3, Golden
Giant, Northern llelle, Minnie and
others farther N. W. The ledge is described as a large one occurring at the
cqntact   of   porphyry   and    quartzite.
Messrs. R. Robinson and Carl Nelson,
who own tbe Golden Giant Northern
'idle, are now running a crosscut tunnel with the object of cutting the ledge
at a depth of about 100 feet. Tbey are
working two-shifts and are in daily expectation of encountering the footwall.
Judging by the surface showings they
estimate that the ledge will be found to
be fully 50 feet in width. Tbe ore met
with near the surface carries values in
both copper and gold, and should these
live down they will have a valuable
property. Mesars. Kstop and Smi h ins
tend shortly doing more work on the
adjoining claim the No. 3. Other prospectors are scattered ah-iut tbe camp,
either prospecting n» doing assessment
work.—Midway A-..v:ince.

When Henry Baker, a lad of 17, did
not come home to dinner the other day.
snys the Buffalo News, his father started out Into the cane patch, half a mile
from the house, to look for hlm. Wheu
he got there lie heard the sound of
fiddling, aud knowing Hull his boy generally took his fiddle along villi hiin
to beguile Hie lime when lie got tired
of work, be I bought the youngster was
having a time all by himself, and be
got rather mad because tbe boy did not
remember the time and come to dinner promptly.
l'ushlug his way through the caue, he
came upon nu ojienlug, and peering
through lhe scattered stalks, be saw a
nitwt astonishing scene. Perched upon
a stump was his f*iu fiddling away for
dear life, with streams of perspiration
pouring down his face, while his countenance expressed tbe utmost fear.
Right ln front of him were three
bears, all sealed ou Iheir hauuehes,
seemingly ns If enjoying Ibe music.
Whenever the tune was lively all three
would nod their heads nnd move their
bodies, nnd seemed to be the most Interested critics. Whenever the violinist's band grew tired and the music
slackened the bears growled and
showed their displeasure by opening
their savage-looking mouths. Then tlie
boy's anu would move more rapidly
and tbe strains would start up again.
evidently much to the pleasure ot thu
The boy's father was so dumbfounded at first that be could uot move, but
a second later, recovering bis self-possession, he turned and ruu to the bouse,
and he and the hired mnu got their
guns and started back to tbe cane
patch. They got there Just In time, as
tbe boy had fallen forward ou the
stump in a dead falut, and the two
lnrger bears were moving toward bim,
growling ns If disappointed at Hie stoppage of their musical treat. Both the
men tired simultaneously, bringing
down two of the bears, while the third
oue shuffled off into the forest.
Young Baker was taken to the house
and soon revived. He stated that Just
as he was getting ready to go to the
houee, having his bow lu his hnnd, tbe
bears eame upon him very suddently.
As they udvauced toward hlm, growling, he started to run, but thought he
could not get awny. Instantly his
hands touched the strings of his violin, and he noticed that tbe bears stood
up ns If listening. Hit by a happy ln-
spirntlou, lie Jumped upon n stump and
began playing. He wns delighted to
see tlie bears were greatly pleased at
this aud they stood off at a distance
and he fiddled nway for dear life. Several times be slopped, and whenever
he did so they growled so ominously
thnt lie liegnn playing again, hoping
with every breath that help would
come from the house.
It Is a queer story, but young Baker's
father vouched for the truth of lt, and

A Belsj-lan Who Made Hie Living aa a
Graveyard  Orator.
Wast de Kelkow, a Belgian of aristocratic descent, hns fallen on evil dnys
lu Paris. He bas given himself up to
the police so ns to avoid begging in the
streets, anil has been accommodated
with a temporary home In the Central
Depot. His story is a strange one. After having spent his patrimony he hnd
to.live by his wits. He accordingly set
up as a graveyard orator. His plan
was to follow a funeral nnd to Inquire
about tbe life and career of the dead
person. Then when the interment was
ever he stood up st tlie graveyard arid
descanted on the virtues of the deceased. This cnused the mourners to
regard him as an old friend of their
defunct relative, so they thanked hlm
tenrfuly and Invited him to the banquets prepared for them at some restaurant near the cemetery.
The Belgian was thus enabled to live
on funeral baked ments, otherwise cold
sausages, cbareuterlc, and occasionally
chicken. . The supply was usually po
copious that Wast de Kelkow put fragments of tbe fenst In his pockets, so
that he could subsist until another
funeral gave him a chance of obtaining
more food, ns well ns money, for he
was occasionally tipped by mourners,
who relished, or were moved by his sepulchral eloquence. At last, however,
the Belgian fouud that bis black clothes
were becoming too seedy, and as be
could not afford a new suit of the.solemn color he surrendered to the pollee,
charging himself with having obtained
money under false pretenses, lie Is
now thoroughly enjoying tbc shelter of
the depot, and looks forward to finishing the winter lu, a snug -prison, free
from csrklng care aud from the neccs-'
Blty of delivering f'uncrnl orations over
dead persons whom he had never seen.
